  • Interior: Rubber Floor Mats / Commander / basic compatibility with other StudeBaker floor rubber

    ALL--- I have a 56 commander wagon/2 door--- old floor rubber is shot

    can floor rubber from a Studebaker truck, or a Lark , BASICALLY FIT close enought ?

    I am not looking for perfection

    The Lark mat should be pretty close, but you are much better off with carpeting than a mat. The rubber mat holds in any moisture and rusts the floor. The carpet to some extent will wick the moisture away from the floor and allow it to evaporate.

      Draw up a template of the cargo area, take it down to the nearest bone yard or pull a part. Those mats from all kinds of SUV's are thick on the ground... Literally!

        one thing to consider. the rubber floor mats have a tendency to trap moisture.

          Rubber mats have killed more Studebakers than any other cause in my opinion.....

            What they said. Easy to clean but requires full moisture sealing of the floor before installation...
